Energetic Bear

Energetic Bear is a cyber espionage group that has been active since at least 2011. This group initially targeted defense and aviation companies, but shifted focus on the energy industry in early 2013. This group has also targeted companies related to industrial control systems. A similar group emerged in 2015 and was identified as Dragonfly 2.0. There is debate over the extent of the overlap between Dragonfly and Dragonfly 2.0, but there is sufficient evidence for these to be tracked as two separate groups.
